Simple launcher for the GNOME desktop, providing easy access to Places, Applications and common configuration items for your computer.
Why should I use USP?

So why would people want to use it instead of the standard menu? It has a host of features that make it much better than the main menu, including support for quick searching of all your installed applications, plugins, tabs and themes (to name a few). It can be used for quick access to more things than just your applications. It's also fully customizable, so you can tweak it to look pretty much exactly like you want it to.

Install USP in Ubuntu 10.04/9.10

Open the terminal (Applications menu -> Accessories -> Terminal) and run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:malacusp/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install usp2 usp2-extras

Open USP

After installation you can find the panel plugin by right clicking your panel, ‘Add to Panel’, ‘Ubuntu System Panel’

    Err.. the docs above say Right click on the panel and add it to the panel. Its a panel applet.

    “After installation you can find the panel plugin by right clicking your panel, ‘Add to Panel’, ‘Ubuntu System Panel”

    If its not in the list you could restart the panel, or just log out/back in.

    Hi, is there a way to launch this with a command line ? I’d like to use it outside of a panel, just like you can summon the ubuntu menu with Alt+F1 for example. Any ideas how it could be achieved ?

    “is there a way to launch this with a command line ?”

    Found the answer myself, here’s how to lauch USP in the terminal :

    $usp run-in-window

    Note: you might have to do that with root privileges
